Blood Tests for a Brazilian Butt Lift

Every surgical facility has its own rules on what tests, if any, a person should have before undergoing an operation under general or intravenous sedation anesthesia. Frequently, it is as simple as a urine pregnancy test in younf women but in those over 35 it may be an EKG, blood count and a blood chemistry. Surgeon go along with the anesthesiologists' preferences because no one ever wants to be in a complication which could have been potentially prevented with a simple test.

Necessary tests before a Brazilian butt lift

The Brazilian butt lift is beautiful effective way to create wonderful curves and a full round natural bottom using only your tissue. In our practice here Miami, we assess every patient individually. Our first priority, even before creating a beautiful result, is your safety. If the patient is over 40 years old, then we recommend a chest x-ray, EKG, and several blood and urine tests. If the patient has any medical problems at any age, we will recommend tests for that specific situation. Most of our patients are healthy young women and receive blood, urine, and pregnancy tests that are part of the Brazilian butt lift package that we provide.

Responsible preparation for surgery will depend on many things

Hi there-

Without knowing more about you, your health history, and the details of your planned or desired operation, it would be irresponsible to answer your question.

Generally, blood work is not required before a Brazilian Butt Lift for healthy young women. When patients are over a certain age, or if there are medical problems to consider, testing of some kind may be recommended.

Your best bet is to find a skilled and talented surgeon Certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery who you like and feel you can trust and visit for a consultation. After achieving a better understanding of these important details, that surgeon will be able to advise you on how to best prepare for a safe and comfortable experience.

Is bllod work required for the BBL?

While not every center requires blood work prior to the BBL on healthy women, in our center any patient who undergoes general anesthesia has blood testing. This is a simple measure but in a few cases the blood work-up can be abnormal even in young healthy women. Safety should always prevail.
